Oil Sheen Alarming Residents Along Muskegon River in Newaygo Co.

GRANT, Mich. (June 30, 2014) — An oil sheen on the Muskegon River in the Grant area is alarming residents.

Linda Pomeroy has lived along the river since 2002, and contacted FOX 17 after noticing what she believes is a leaking oil pipe.

“The smell was awful, it almost made me gag it was so bad,” she said.

The DEQ was on site Monday, placing boons and absorbent pads to aid in the clean-up while they determine who is responsible for the pipe.
